We have been hosted by the local Episcopal Church and engage in physical work, worship and socialize with the local residents. Although no special skills are required, there is always plenty of work to go around. No Spanish language skills are required.

For 15 years, Honduras Threads has enabled women in rural areas to earn money in their own communities to better feed, house and educate their families and provide them with medical care. This year the five informal co-ops became a social enterprise under Honduran law. Honduras Threads teaches the women embroidery and sewing techniques, the skills to run their own business, provides designs and donated fabrics, and markets their beautifully hand-embroidered products. Through our volunteer efforts all year long and our mission trips once a year, we strengthen lives through work, pride and faith.
